[laughter] than concentrating on the re-election of republican candidates. what are your political ambitions? >> oh, that's so funny, you know? you know, of all my critic -- if all my critics spent more time worrying about how they're going to help republicans win in november, i think we'd be well down the road to securing and guaranteeing -- your word -- you know, control of the house and the senate this coming november. the reality of it is we are launching a 48-state, six-week bus tour
